About the program:
D-180 is a digital mentoring program integral to Deloitte’s community response efforts to COVID-19. The program targets university graduates in their first few years in the workforce as well as high school, college students across the Middle East and Cyprus to provide them with mentoring and real work exposure to Deloitte volunteer professionals.
One of the main aims of the program is to equip youth with skills needed to find meaningful work in the new economy. Deloitte mentors are paired with mentees to support them through virtual meetings along their skills building and employability journeys. Deloitte mentors will expose the mentees to the world of work, support them in setting and pursuing educational journeys or entering the job market, and act as supporting soundboards to mentees.
